normative life stage theories & developmental timelines presume cisness & straightness (in addition to class privilege, access to which is racially stratified, & ability); the idea that you will have already dated in high school, that you will find a spouse by roughly 26, and that you will spend your thirties raising school-age children is deeply straight.
gay and trans people have experiences of age as a social comparison that are completely unintelligible within heterosexual concepts of time.
autism, mh (kinda -), idk how to cw this? Show more
ive suspected i had autism since at least like 2011 and it seems like every time i learn something about it im more sure of it but i dont really know what to do with this information...its never seemed worth the trouble to try to get diagnosed. idk trying to be an independent adult is testing my limits i guess

Visited a friend’s office and, while waiting for him, I stood admiring the many fish he has mounted on his walls. I was most enamoured with a magnificent bass, when suddenly– would you believe!– it turned to look right at me! I was stunned! More so when it began to sing: Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry Be Happy” in a precise likeness of that singer’s voice. Well I was quite paralysed with fear! Before my friend could return to corroborate this, the fish stopped. Am I losing my mind? Help me Reddit
"a webcomic whose trans dude protagonist is rescued from his suicide attempt by an amateur demon and her drag queen older brother and gets involved in the demonic criminal underworld through a transdimensional extreme BDSM club whose bisexual minotaur proprietor wants to make bank off of the parasitic demon-wasps that have been eating the main character's flesh since birth"
sound interesting? please read Tales from the Brink, it's by my friend and it's SO good and cool
We hear about states rights & shit a lot when it comes to the racist and homophobic shit conservatives want to do. BUT states rights is an excellent decentralization of power from the executive branch. Fed wages too low? A state can raise it. Not enough protections for civil rights? A state can amend its constitution to implement it. No free public college? A state can make its colleges tuition free/funded w tax dollars. Its a tool to protect ourselves against a corrupted administration.
